    Basically I woke up this morning and I felt really dizzy. I had a good nights sleep and have tried having something sugary incase its my blood sugar. But pretty much just felt the same. I feel like ive just got in from a big night out or something, the room is spinning all the time. It doesnt matter whether im sitting or standing although I feel a little less dizzy when im sitting down. When im standing I feel like I have no balance.

    Im wondering if it is related to my period which I started yesterday? Also wondering if anyone else gets this when they have their period? Ive never experienced anything like this before.

    Also I know I should go to the doctors and I have tried ringing them but they have no appointments today. I just want to know if theres anything I can do at home to stop it.

    Make sure you're drinking enough water and eating- some kind of slow-release carb (a sandwich or something). And if you're on the pill could be that.

    Have plenty of rest, avoid bright lights (ideally lie down in a dark room), avoid loud noises etc.
    Like oh wow said, make sure you're eating and drinking plenty (good stuff!), if you're going to sit or stand up, make sure you do so slowly or your blood pressure just drops and it'll make you feel even more light-headed.
    I think it's a case of waiting to see if it goes away but managing it as best you can.
    Maybe take an ibuprofen or something, see if that has any effect?
    Also, avoid the computer!
    Sorry that this comment is like 10 hours late, haha, hope your day has been okay! x

    I used to get this a lot for no reason at all - usually after I hadn't eaten very much for a few days It goes away within a few hours though

    Well there you go, thats your reason, you hadnt eaten very much for a few days, the body doesnt like that much and it will make you dizzy
